Old Lamplighter Lyrics

Artist: Jim Ed Brown
Album: Jim Ed Sings The Browns

He made the night a little brighter wherever he would go
The old lamplighter of long long ago
His snowy hair was so much whiter beneath the candle glow
The old lamplighter of long long ago
You'd hear the patter of his feet as he came toddling down the street
His smile would hide a lonely heart you see
If there were sweethearts in the park he'd pass a lamp and leave it dark
Remembering the days that used to be
For he recalls when dreams were new he loves someone who loves him too
Who walks with him alone in memory
He made the night a little brighter wherever he would go
The old lamplighter of long long ago
Now if you look up at the sky you'll understand the reason why
The little stars at night are all aglow
He turns them on when night is here he turns them off when dawn is near
The little man we loved of long ago
He made the night a little brighter wherever he would go
The old lamplighter of long long ago

It is great to be able to look up lyrics from my childhood. My Mom taught this song to me when I was barely old enough to sing. It's a great song.
